The Women's 63 kg weightlifting event at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, United Kingdom, took place at ExCeL London.[1]

Total score was the sum of the lifter's best result in each of the snatch and the clean and jerk, with three lifts allowed for each lift. In case of a tie, the lighter lifter won; if still tied, the lifter who took the fewest attempts to achieve the total score won. Lifters without a valid snatch score did not perform the clean and jerk.[2]
